Hensol Woods, The People & More. In “American Color” DT Styles.

Today we made a visit to a woodland in the South East of Wales, known as Hensol Woods near Cowbridge. Generally I’m out of love with landscape type photography, so today was a challenge for me. Of course, I love being out, and mingling with other people, so that part was easy!

I decided to concentrate on photographing the people. Today I used my Fujifilm X-T3 with the Viltrox 56mm F/1.4 lens. On the front of the lens I used a Duto diffusion filter, as I wanted a more analogue feel, plus the images you are about to see are edited in Darktable using my new Kodachrome based DT Styles which I have names American Color Classic, American Color Soft and American Color Noir. There may be a few tiny weaks to these DT Styles before I release them at the end of the week, but overall I am happy with them. I was especially happy with them on my tests of street photography I have done over the years, and I will share these, plus the DT Styles on my next update this weekend.

These following images, are edited using the American Color Classic DT Style.

The following images are edited using the American Color Soft DT Style.

And finally, this set of images are edited using the American Color Noir DT Style.

I’m looking forward to sharing these DT Styles with you. The diffusion filter generally meant I lost a bit of contrast in the images, but I do feel it just gives the images a more analogue look and feel, which is lost when shooting straight digital images. As always, images are best viewed full screen, so click on them and enjoy!

Thank you all for your time, and as always, don’t forget that you can support me with PayPal at mgadams1970@gmail.com if you want to… And every little helps!
